Courteney Cox Reflects on ‘Friends,’ Her Career, and Yes, Prince Harry Doing Mushrooms at Her House: ‘I Definitely Wasn’t Passing Them Out’
From the start, Courteney Cox was different. She was from Alabama — a place where, she recalls, people were steelworkers or doctors — and didn’t know anything about show business. So, she sought it out. Never in her wildest dreams did she think it’d lead her to a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, to be unveiled Feb. 27.
The summer after she graduated high school, Cox moved to New York City and began modelling.
“I got a job right away and I thought, that was easy,” she recalls. Then the changes came. “It was a makeover. They took the Alabama fresh face and made a little funky style and it was really fun. They changed everything about me — they said I was Kentucky-born and they changed my last name to Myles. I don’t know why! But I never thought that when I was 18 it would lead to a career that I love and have really learned so much … I just kept doing things that led me to something else and I just kept learning and learning and learning.”
She never imagined a time when she’d land a leading role on the biggest show on TV and star in all 236 episodes. She didn’t see a time when she’d be a seven-time Screen Actors Guild Award nominee, one of which she won. Cox wasn’t aware that when she took on the part of a horror movie “bitch,” as she describes it, she’d hold on to the role for nearly three decades.
But that all happened, thanks to her hard work.

‘Shining Vale’ Creatives Tease Courteney Cox’s Turn In New Starz Series
DEADLINE – The creators and stars of Shining Vale gathered at TCA on Thursday to tease their genre-bender, which is set to debut early next year, noting that its star Courteney Cox delivers a performance unlike any we’ve seen from her before.

Courteney Set to Appear on “25 Words or Less”
Courteney Cox-Lisa Kudrow ‘Friends’ Faceoff Among Celebrity Moments On Tap In Fox TV Stations’ ‘25 Words Or Less’
DEADLINE – EXCLUSIVE: Fox Television Stations’ 25 Words or Less, a game show premiering September 16 in 98% of the country, will feature a Friends reunion/faceoff with Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow.
The matchup, timed to the 25th anniversary of Friends, involves just two of the celebrity guests on tap for the show’s debut season. The others are: Chelsea Handler; Chris Noth; Oscar Nunez; Melissa Peterman; Rick Fox; Lea Thompson; Mary McCormack; Willie Garson; Natalie Morales; Loni Love; Penn Jillette; Alison Sweeney; Jamie Kennedy; Tisha Campbell; Dr. Drew Pinsky; Margaret Cho; Jane Lynch; Pete Holmes; Val Chmerkovsky; and WWE wrestlers Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods, Apollo Crews and Ali.
Meredith Vieira is the host of 25 Words. While she gained acclaim for her work in news and documentary, Vieira is best known to most viewers as the former co-host of Today and The View and solo host of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.
Kudrow’s appearance is not a complete coincidence. She helped develop 25 Words or Less, along with producing partner Dan Bucatinsky, Mary McCormack, Michael Morris. The show runner is Michael Canter and Bruce Sterten created the 25 Words or Less board game as well as another popular game, Taboo.
Stephen Brown, EVP Programming and Development for Fox Television Stations, called the show “a great break from the depressing news of the day. It’s fast, smart, funny, and led by the best host in television, Meredith Vieira. She is the master at corralling big celebrity personalities and driving a game that’s fun to watch and play.”
While Fox Television Stations provide the foundation of 25 Words‘ distribution, the show will also air on stations owned by Sinclair, Gray, Hearst, CBS, Scripps and Tribune.
